Friday 6/30 Call to Action

1. Yes. The terrible GOP healthcare bill is still as stinky as ever. As we learn more about it, the cruelness of it is apparent.
As the CBO continues to study the BCRA, it has found that cuts to Medicaid become even more severe by 2036. The cuts will go up to 35%!!
The GOP Senate has been very calculating about the cuts that will happen with their new bill. The effects that will truly hurt their base will not occur until after the 2018 mid-term elections. Many of the worst occur after the 2020 presidential elections. This is very sneaky. NPR provides an excellent timeline of the cuts. Read here:…/how-the-senate-gop-health-care-bill-co…
2. The Election Integrity Commission Wants Your Personal Information
The vice chairman of Trump’s commission on election integrity, Kris Kobach, has sent out a letter to all 50 states requesting information about you. This includes your name, birthday, voting history, and the last four digits of your social security number.
 This attempt to capture our information comes as a result of an executive order signed by Trump last May and is supposed to “promote fair and honest federal elections.” This EO is in response to Trump’s unproven claims that millions of undocumented Americans voted in the presidential election last fall. The commission is chaired by VP Pence along with Kobach who is the Secretary of State in Kansas. (Secretary Kobach has a long history of disenfranchising voters in his own state and concurs with Trump that millions of people voted illegally).
I get the feeling that the information they garner will not be used to ensure honest federal elections. Instead it will be used to suppress voters.

This roundup of information is concerning and we need to encourage Governor Dayton and MN Secretary of State Steve Simon to refuse to comply.
